But when deliveries can be made by driverless vans, when lorries are driverless, when call centers become more automated when everybody just cut each others hair what then? Who then buys the products that the computers and robots are making?
Do you really think that is going to happen? Surely as soon as there is a fatal accident involving a member of the public, the whole thing with collapse into a nightmare of litigation. I cannot see it ever working.
They said the same about the Iron Horse Mike.
It doesn't alter the fact that for capitalism to work it needs enough people with money to buy its products, Henry Ford understood this so despite being a fascist wanker he paid his workers enough to buy the cars they made.
Looks like the current masters of the universe may have forgotten that they need consumers or perhaps they all think they can pay their own workers fuck all, pay no taxes and let others pick up the slack. Parasites is the correct word for people like that. Them and the rent seekers will do more to damage capitalism than Stalin ever managed.
